Movie Review: Dark (2015)

Well here I am again, out of retirement (again) but the opportunity to watch and review a film sent to me by the production company is always a no-brainer. Let me begin by saying this film is not classically HORROR but it's subject matter and the means of delivery firmly set it in the psychological thriller category so it's all good. DARK tells the story of a young former model (Kate) who is struggling with major personal issues. Left alone for the weekend after her girlfriend goes away, her internal hell rears it's ugly face in every possible way. Oh, and to top it all off, it all unfurls during the 2003 New York Black-out (I checked, it was a real thing!) Her descent into madness is beautifully captured as we follow Kate on a journey that takes her from random bars drinking with strangers to being a self-imposed prisoner in her own home. When I say follow, I really do mean follow! I counted very few seconds of screen time without Kate being prominent.
